I've been interested in birds since my mother bought me the book Birds Eat and Eat and Eat, when I was about 8. So of course, I have a bird feeder, and a hummingbird feeder in the summer. Here are the 13 kinds of birds I've seen and fed on my North Carolina back deck:
1. cardinal (the NC state bird)
2. junco (plump little black and white bird, below)
7. cowbird (bird with brown head, below)
8. mourning dove
11. ruby-throated hummingbird
12. purple finch (bird with red head, below)
13. squirrel--oh, yeah, that's right, NOT a bird, but he eats more sunflower seeds than 12 of them combined, unless I chase him off first!
